Shelby Co. Bridge Fails Inspection, Closes

Historic Who Da Thot It Bridge, shut down Monday for safety reasons, may now be closed to vehicle traffic forever. Magistrates voted Tuesday morning at the meeting of Shelby County Fiscal Court to call a public hearing to close the bridge after discussing the merits of trying to get the structure repaired or replaced. Shelby County Judge-Executive Rob Rothenburger said he got a call two weeks ago from state officials informing him that bridge inspectors judged the bridge was unsafe and that the county needed to either repair it, replace it or close it.
